Ratings and Reviews
I have two quibbles and one problem with this app, which is otherwise very good. I like the interface overall - it presents the information I actually want to see, and doesn’t waste most of the screen showing me a pretty picture of the cover. The book list shows a decent number of books at once on my phone, and has a search feature. I also appreciate being able to easily skip by time or chapter.
The quibbles: First, I’d like to have an overall progress indicator, either instead of or as an alternative to the chapter progress indicator on the play screen. Sometimes I need to know how much time is left in the book, and there doesn’t appear to be a good way to tell with the current UI. Second, I’d appreciate an index (similar to the Contacts app) so it’s easy to jump to titles later in the list.
The problem: Loading multiple books using any method other than iTunes file sharing is either painful or broken, and those other methods were a major attraction of the app for me. If you drag&drop multiple .m4b book files via WebDav, the copy operation will crash because the player app moves the files into folders before they’ve finished copying. It seems to work OK for 1 book at a time, but if you want to load 200 at once (or even just several), forget it. This operation is likewise painful using cloud sharing - selecting 1 book at a time is impractical for large numbers of books, and multiples at once has failed in unpredictable ways for me multiple times.
Perfect aside from one thing
I have used this app every day for years, I love it. One problem, once in a while I literally have to uninstall/reinstall the app to make it work, which also obviously deletes all my books.
It just randomly gets stuck on the loading wheel and resetting phone, closing app, hard resets do nothing to fix, actually reinstalling now, hopefully that still fixes it like last time, just hard to lose your place in a 60 hour book and have to re transfer books. But most of all it’s the bad timing, this has only happened in the middle of the day at work, never on a weekend or at night.
Anyways, this has been happening forever so I would guess you are aware, but otherwise your app is perfect, thanks either way, maybe take a look into this, though I have no idea how to isolate the problem, as it happens like every 2 months completely randomly, after pausing and trying to resume playback. It’s not my files, they play as normal after reinstalls, so far.
You get 5 stars anyways.
Great Groundwork, but with a Bug
I love the number of options that are available in adding books to the app. I bought this app to avoid the hassle of using iTunes. I’ve been running into an issue repeatedly that make the app frustrating to use. Periodically, if I pause/play my audiobook using the controls on the lock screen or using my headphones my place is not saved. I can tell I’m going to lose my spot if the current time position stops changing. Also, once it messes up, the pause button on the lock screen stops functioning. I have to open the app then press pause, next time I press play it starts from the last time I paused, not the most recent. I’ve attempted to email the author and didn’t get a response. I’ll keep holding out for an update. The author has done a great job with this application and I’ll update my review once the bug is fixed. I appreciate your hard work!
